Star of the stage, Billy Porter, is in talks to join director Barry Levinson’s adaptation of Philip Roth’s novel The Humbling, which centers on an aging stage actor whose empty life is altered by a "counterplot of unusual erotic desire" - he gets involved with a much younger woman, after retiring to his upstate New York farm, and they engage in all kinds of sexual experimentation, until the fun ends.
